In my quest to find ways and means of inspiring Rotherham United to do us the biggest of favours in winning points against Bristol City, it occurred to me that perhaps the thing Rotherham is most famous for are the Chuckle Brothers. Barry and Paul ‘Chuckle’ (real names Elliott) were born in Rotherham in the 1940′s, and have been providers of dubious children’s entertainment for years.
I have no idea whether or not Barry or Paul are active followers of the Millers, but I’d certainly like to think so. So we’ve had ‘touching the badge‘, well now we have a mantra to go with it – for the remainder of this week, to evoke images of the Chuckle Brothers and also perhaps to invoke wonderful passing and attacking football, remember to think – or say aloud – “To me, to you, to me, to you!” at intervals to spread a little Chuckle-magic towards Mark Robins and his players!
Perhaps you could have a little chant of the mantra whilst touching the badge at the same time – surely with such powerful magic at work it can’t fail to have an impact, can it? Who am I kidding?
